Myanmar president pledges to take ASEAN chairmanship role in 2014

Myanmar President U Thein Sein said on Thursday that his country will be taking a leadership role of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2014 in gaining the momentum of ASEAN achievements, fulfilling the 2015 ASEAN Community targets and laying down the ASEAN Vision beyond 2015.

In his message on the occasion of the 46th anniversary of the founding of ASEAN, U Thein Sein noted that political, economic and social reforms in Myanmar have given the country more opportunities in boosting integration with ASEAN member states in the ASEAN community.

The people-centered democracy in Myanmar, which is in line with the ASEAN Charter, has facilitated economic development of the country and accordingly helped lift the people's social status, he said, adding that Myanmar's efforts to implement the ASEAN Community Blueprints have positive effects on the country's political, economic and social objectives.

He stressed the vital importance of the Myanmar people's willingness and participation to strive for a modern and developed nation and to achieve the goals of the ASEAN Community.

He called on the ASEAN member states to cooperate with each other hand in hand while trying to develop individually, saying that Myanmar is committed to making its greatest possible contribution to the ASEAN Community by taking advantage of the position as a land bridge between ASEAN and its dialogue partners.

He vowed to assume the 2014 ASEAN Chairmanship by ensuring the centrality of ASEAN, obtaining ASEAN consensus and representing ASEAN in strengthening and promoting closer relations with external partners.

With the support of ASEAN member states and its dialogue partners, he pledged Myanmar's determination to undertake successfully the role of chairmanship for the first time since it joined the regional grouping in 1997.
